The City of Toronto and the George Brown College School of Design have begun a joint venture with approximately 70 Toronto-based film festivals to create a new website at <http://www.torontofilmfestivals.com>. The site is intended to provide information to the public about film events and festivals in the city though the year. Users can search festivals by name, date or by various categories. "Toronto's film festival community is unique in the world for its size and for its diversity," said Mayor David Miller. "Many of these festivals are recognized internationally for their innovative programming. Their collective efforts, mirrored in this new website, constantly add to the artistic vibrancy of the city while also expanding the understanding that residents and visitors have of our many ethnic and cultural communities."
Toronto-based Rogers Ventures has made an unspecified investment in vacation website CottageCountry.com. According to the company, the investment is intended to foster the expansion of the site into the leading destination for cottage rentals over the next year. "With Rogers Ventures as an investor, CottageCountry.com will have the support, expertise and media network required to grow exponentially and to develop strong brand awareness among vacationers," said Mark Bordo, president of CottageCountry.com.
